Tiddly Inks challenge 19- say goodbye to summer!!

Hello peeps!!
This is my second post for today as I have actually managed to get my card done for the Tiddly Inks challenge, say goodbye to summer.
I had a little idea for it after bringing home a page from my bff's magazine throwing out pile yesterday but didn't have chance to start it until tonight when Mo had gone to bed and I am very impressed with myself for getting it finished!!!!! lol!!!!!
I had already coloured up my gorgeous gossmere with some autumny colours so all I needed to do was cut her out a little, she actually lost a bit of her fringey dangly bits due to scissors cutting them but I know Christy will fully undersand this small slip, hair can be quite tricky to trim....... lol!! and hugs for Christy!!!!!!!!
I made my little framey box card and I just had to use my awesome funky hand funky seasons cd, it has this gorgeous autumn sentiment paper on it. I printed out in the delicious orangey colour ( there are 2 more colour schemes to choose from too!!!!)
I stamped around the edges of my frame with a little leaf stamp and made myself a little shrinky button ( the shrinky button is all down to the lovely Chris who showed us how to do it at the demo on saturday!! I have made 6 since!!!lol!!!)
Then a little orangey chalking ad hey presto!!!
You would laugh at my big sis sam if you were here tonight, she has no internet at home and hasn't had any for 3 weeks now!! she has another week to go until she gets it back so I have introduced her to the world of scheduled posting!!!!!

Get Funky - Fabulous funky florals!!!

Morning everyone!!!!
I am so excited this morning because it is the first time I have made a challenge card for the Get Funky challenge blog being on the Funky hand DT!!!!!

Its Kathy's challenge this month and she set us the fabulous task of............
Fabulous Funky Floral Fantasy

The catch is that Kath wants to see lots of dimension in the way you use the flowers, so just a flower patterned paper, or a flat flowery image just won't do at all!!!!
When creating you flowery masterpieces, please remember your project will only be eligible for the prize if you use at least one Funky Hand product - Click HERE for a quick link to the Funky Hand, you will be spoilt for choice and if you were lucky enough to hit Anice's funky sale over last weekend its a perfect time to get exploring those cd's or downloads!!!!

So for my card I used the colour me happy cd. I wanted some flowers that would match the gorgeous funky flowery paper on the cd so I went for pleated flowers. They were so relaxing to make (especially after a little bit of help from my scorpal ,lol!!!). For the centres I made myself a couple of funky faux brads with a bit of scrap paper left over from the card base.

For the card base itself I printed straight onto my card blank with the flowery paper and then added the plain piece of linen looking paper to the bottom. I also made la little pleated paper ribbon to go across the centre of my card!
A quickly stamped sentiment and a few martha branches for leaves and the job was done!!!

The little pleated flowers are so much fun to make, I had a few more funky scraps left on my desk from a few other bits I had been making so I used some to make a funky little memo holder for my fridge!!!
....and here it is in action holding another one of my fav funkyhand cd's!!!!
Mo has been for his back to school haircut this morning. Please excuse the grimace on his face!! its a bit bright out there today and the sun got in his eyes!!! We went for 7:30am to daddy's hairdresser as he wanted his hair like daddy's!! He looks so cute!!!! he was most impressed when the man asked if he wanted gel on it and jumped at the chance!!!
I am off out into my craft room now to have a bit of a play while Mo is busy with his lego, its gorgeous here today so I have plomped him outside with his car mat on the decking and a bowl of water for putting his boats made out of lego in!! happy days!!!
Thank you for popping in and don't forget to pop over to get funky and take a peek at the dt's fabulous creations, they are all so pretty.
